Question: I adverstised on Kijiji looking for someone to take over my contract, with 2 years left. I have had atleast 10 emails with people wanting it. Several people have said they dont need my phone because they already have one.
This seems a little odd, why would they want into a contract when they can go monthly with the phone they already have?
Are there any scams going on??? I called rogers and they didnt know of any, and they said once I transfer it, its outta my hands and have nothing to worry about.
Anyone got any info???
Thanks for the reply
Why would they want too lock in when they can go monthly? Also, is there only 3 year contracts?
Now, for them to take over the contract.. the person its getting handed to, would have to pretty much go through the regular process the same as getting a new phone (getting their personal info, possible credit check, etc) correct?
That is correct. The Rogers agent will have to run a credit check on that person. If the persons credit is good, they will give the green light to have that person get the transfer for the line.
If the persons credit is bad, then they will need to put down a amount of deposit Rogers tells them. This is how it goes with any carrier.
I would also like to add that even if the other person that wants the line, already has 1 or 2 cellphone lines on their account, it means nothing. Rogers will let you have UP TO 5 cellphone lines. This person can just easily just sell or give the line out to someone else on Kijiji just like you did.
This is normal & nothing scamming or bad is going on.
